Quantiloop was released just about six months ago – and reviewed here on the Music App Blog – and provides a very impressive addition to the cluster of looper-style apps that are available under iOS (for example, Loopy HD, Loopr, Voice Jam Studio, LooperSonic, LoopTree, Group The Loop and Ostinator).
Stephan Marx has bought a distinctive retro design that looks very ‘hardware’ in nature and, as this gives the app a very distinctive feel and mode of operation, I suspect it will give it particular appeal to those with experience of floor-mounted hardware looper pedals. As I reported at the end of January, the app had a significant update to v.2.0 and this bought a refresh of the UI, the number of looper slots was been doubled from two to four making much more ambitious live looping arrangements a possibility.
And you still get the dedicated rhythm track on top of this and, combined with the included IAA hosting and various types of sync – including Ableton Link – you could, for example, host a suitable drum/groovebox app within Quantiloop and sync its playback with that of your loops.
Anyway, as I reported a week or so ago, Stephan released an update to Quantiloop taking the app to v.2.0.2 and adding some new features and performance tweaks. And, on the back of that update, he very kindly provided me with five copies of the app to giveaway to readers here at the Music App Blog. The draw closed yesterday and the winning names were pulled out of the hat this morning….. and the winners are:-
All the winners have now been sent an email with the details of how to get hold of their prizes. Incidentally, if you do appear as a winner in one of these giveaways and you don’t seem to have seen an email from me with the promo code details, then do make sure you check in your junk, trash or spam folders just in case your email system has ‘filed’ the message there :-)
Oh, and if you want to make sure you are entered for all the promo code giveaways that I run through the Music App Blog, then get yourself on the email newsletter list – and pick up your copy of our free ’25 apps’ guide :-)
For potential purchasers, at UK£9.99/US$9.99, Quantiloop offers a fairly easy way into looper technology that mimics the world of the hardware looper with the convenience (and price) of an iOS music app…. well worth a look…. as is the user demo video embedded below that shows the new version of Quantiloop in action embedded into a live performance rig. Feel free to check out the post on the v.2.0 update which aded a whole range of new features and then hit the download button to find out more…..
